(gentle chair yoga with breathing and meditation for patients in treatment or post-surgery)
Thursdays, 10am - 11:00am
At the Elizabeth M. Pfriem SWIM Center for Cancer Care, Level 3 Oncology Yoga Room adjacent to St. Vincent's Medical Center, 2800 Main Street, Bridgeport, CT (right off elevator, last room on left)
Sponsored by St. Vincent's SWIM Across the Sound, the free Yoga program is open to cancer survivors undergoing active treatment, as well as those who have completed treatments. If you have recently been diagnosed with cancer, Yoga can help to prepare you mentally, physically, and spiritually for upcoming surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years to improve physical and emotional well-being. Research on yoga conducted with cancer patients and survivors yielded improvements in sleep quality, mood, stress, cancer-related distress, cancer-related symptoms and overall quality of life.
